“DEWA invests in its employees through vocational and self-development programs, while focusing on attracting and empowering Emirati competencies and talents. As an important global platform for advancing research in energy and water to prepare for future challenges, the Centre is a main pillar in our efforts to elevate employee capabilities to become effective partners in building the future. The Centre provides the latest global updates, technologies, and practices, especially in clean and renewable energy, sustainability, digital transformation, and zero-carbon. The Centre attracts the finest researchers and academics from different nationalities, which contributes to exchanging the best local and global practices and experiences. This also enhances the public-academic partnerships to turn Dubai into the top destination for scholars and researchers in clean and renewable energy.”

The workshop, part of the Al-Baheth program, highlighted the digital twins of the power network using real-time simulations and their role in providing a deep understanding of system dynamics and performance.

These cutting-edge technologies empower system operators and planners to visualize, analyze, and optimize power network operations and planning, leading to more efficient, resilient, and sustainable energy ecosystems.

“The Al-Baheth program promotes and enhances a culture of research and development. It provides Emirati talents with the opportunity to participate in the development of projects undertaken by DEWA and its R&D Centre. The program also engages local and international universities in R&D by sending the best technical candidates to work with DEWA’s researchers in different areas,” said Mr. Waleed Bin Salman, Executive Vice President of Business Development and Excellence at DEWA.
